Abstract

original image

A facile method for the synthesis of gold-based hybrid nanocrystals is presented by Jianguo Hou and co-workers on p. 1936. Pre-synthesized nanocrystal seeds of CdSe, PbSe, FePt, Cu2O, or FePt–CdS are used for controlled heterogeneous nucleation and growth of gold. The frontispiece shows model structures of such hybrid nanocrystals.
